* Note: See the ?Emeril?s Essence Information? recipe which is included in this collection. For the sweetbreads: In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and Emeril?s Essence. Lightly toss the sweetbreads in the flour mixture, coating each piece completely. In a saute pan, heat the olive oil. When the oil is smoking hot, add the sweetbreads. Sear the sweetbreads on each side, stirring constantly for about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and place on a paper-lined plate. Season with Essence. For the sauce: In the same saute pan, heat the olive oil. When the pan is smoking hot, saute the shallots and garlic for 1 minute. Add the lentils, tomatoes, reduction and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Bring up to a boil, reduce to a simmer, add the sweetbreads. Simmer the sweetbreads for about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the green onions. Finish the sauce with the butter and re-season if needed. To assemble, spoon the smothered sweetbreads into a swallow oversized bowl. Garnish with chopped parsley and fine ground black pepper. This recipe yields 4 appetizer servings.
